Everyone’s looking for simple weight loss tips that they can follow and get results. There’s no magic pill as far as I’m concerned, but rather multiple lifestyle changes from making unconscious choices to conscious choices. It’s with this in mind that I offer 3 weight loss tips each and every Friday so that you the reader can grab one or more and begin to apply them to your life.
Weight loss programs are such subjective things, everyone has an opinion. Mine is easy – to eat more nutrient dense foods in the form of dark green leafy vegetables, vegetables, beans and legumes, nuts and seeds with animal protein a few times through the week. It’s a modified cave man diet that I have yet to name but am working on as I write my forthcoming book. In the mean time, here are this weeks 3 weight loss tips.
Eat 5 to 6 Small Meals a Day
Eat a breakfast as soon as you get up and then every 3 or so hours after that. A sample 6 meal day would include breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and small starch free evening snack. Smaller more frequent meals are easier to digest, help you use nutrients better and most importantly, help control blood sugar levels. Controlling blood sugar levels is the key to controlling hunger, fatigue and cravings.
Eat Live Foods, Avoid Processed foods
Live foods are those that will rot and go bad. Food is meant to go bad. When shopping, stick to the outer edges of the grocery store where fresh produce is kept and avoide the inner isles where all the dead boxed and canned “stuff” is. Live foods support life. Live food’s provide enzymes for healthy cells.
Replace Sugar Laden Drinks with Fresh Fruit
When you’d normally reach for some sort of sugary beverage, instead have some fresh fruit. Fruits low on the glycemic index include apples, oranges and all berries. Fruits provide a natural way to increase fiber and nutrients while making a good replacement choice for non-nutritional sugary beverages.
